1 20lb or 2 10lb turkeys?

redgirl | Nov 5, 2010 02:25 PM

i have 10 people coming for tgiving and i have always made a larger dry-brined turkey. but the butcher convinced me that i should go with two smaller birds. i now have a large oven (a bluestar) and could probably fit them side by side.
but then i got cold feet. has anyone done 2 smaller turkeys vs. 1 big? and if i roast them both in the same oven (with convection) do i need to add some time in to compensate for the amount of stuff in the oven??

some advice would be appreciated.
